Hey everyone,

I'm pleased to announce Tomboy 1.3.1, a development release
on the road to Tomboy 1.4, which will coincide with GNOME 3.0.

========================
IMPORTANT PACKAGER NOTE
========================
Packagers take note of two important changes in this release:
* Panel applet support is disabled by default until/unless it is
ported to the new d-bus API. This is mostly done to drop deprecated
libgnome dependencies. However, if your distro is still planning to
ship these dependencies (and really, isn't everyone?), then please
configure Tomboy with --enable-panel-applet to avoid pissing of users.
* Docs have been ported to Mallard format, so the files installed are
completely different than before.

Tomboy is a simple personal note-taking application designed to be
unobtrusive and friendly, while supporting inter-note-links similar to
a WikiWikiWeb to help you organize your notes and ideas.  It can run
either as a GNOME panel applet or a notification tray icon.
